Nuggets Food Briefs: Wine, Women & Shoes fundraiser, Heard on Hurd and Brunch Brawl

Sipping stilettos

The Wine, Women & Shoes fundraiser for Impact Oklahoma returns 5-9 p.m. Sept. 25 to Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club, 7000 NW Grand Blvd.

Featuring wine tastings from eight vintners, a fashion show and displays of shoes, wines and jewelry, the fundraiser benefits Impact Oklahoma, said board member and event co-chairwoman Susan Carr.

“The annual dues for membership are $1,000, and because we’re purely a volunteer organization, 100 percent of that funding goes to nonprofits who apply to us for grants,” she said.

Recipients to receive grants this year are nonprofit groups such as Center for Children and Families and Infant Crisis Services. Tickets are $150. Visit

Hurd that!

Downtown Edmond hopes to lure families to dine al fresco at Heard on Hurd on Saturday, with a full lineup of food trucks scheduled.

Citizens Bank of Edmond’s food and music street festival pulled in its biggest audience last month with nearly 18,000 guests, and organizers hope cooler weather and family-friendly musical acts will help break that record again.

Food trucks and vendors featured Saturday include Czech Delights, Mutt’s Amazing Hot Dogs, Pagoda Pizza, Let’s Do Greek and That Pie Place.

“Whether you’re interested in vegan or a burger, you will have plenty of options to choose from,” said Citizens president and CEO Jill Castilla.

Music acts Sugar Free Allstars, Aluma, Baby Bee and Wilson and the Snakes will perform. Heard on Hurd runs 6-10 p.m. at the corner of Broadway and Hurd Street in downtown Edmond.


You can put a hurt on some brunch, but will you let brunch hurt you? Balthazar’s Ladies and Lords of Wrestling returns Sunday for Brunch Brawl at OKC Farmers Public Market, 311 S. Klein Ave.

BLOW founder Leslie Hensley (aka The Burger) said the show features a number of title matches, including one in which she teams up with Delicious Diva to take on Texas Chainsaw Mascara and The Hills Have Eyeshadow for the Ladies Tag Team championship. Doors open at 3 p.m. Matches start at 4 p.m. Admission is $10-$15. Find tickets at
